Via Sierra Leone News Hunters: DIFSIL Concerned Over Ebola Threat on Disabled. Excerpt:
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Disabled International Foundation - Sierra Leone, (DIFSIL), Ambassador, Imambay Kadie Kamara, has added her voice to national concerns over the spread of the dreadful Ebola disease in the country.
According to Ambassador Kadie Kamara, the issues of Ebola have become too great a concern for her organization. She admonished every Sierra Leonean to come onboard and help fight this disease. She said however, that her concern over the fate of disabled persons in the face of the dreaded Ebola scourge has multiplied, taking into consideration their vulnerable status.
“I am really worried about the disabled people including the deaf, blind and physically challenged. I am concerned over trying to reach and educate them about the Ebola virus because they too are exposed to its dangers.
“We are using this medium to call on government, its partners and citizens as a whole to help educate disabled people about the Ebola disease and its symptoms, so that they too would know how to prevent contracting the disease and what to do in the event someone close to them does,” Ambassador Kadie Kamara said.
